#1 - Batman was around since 1991.

#2 - I can't read the rest of your post. Paragraphs are your friend.

Hamster Boy - Judging coasters based on No Limits is like judging a food item by looking at a picture of it. Not even close!

Seperate Paragraphs are for different thoughts and ideas. That is all pertaining to one thing buddy. Try again. *** Edited 7/7/2006 6:26:58 PM UTC by CoasterDiscern***

ApolloAndy's avatar Either way, I didn't read your post because I can't read a paragraph that long.

I intend no offense, but if you think that diatribe should be one paragraph, you should still be in the fifth grade.

I'm just scratching my head trying to discern what PeeWee Herman has to do with anything?

It has nothing to do with anything. I get a bit frustrated and turn into an ass. Disregard my comment if you will peabody.

I'm just taking a look at things in a different perspective. I just think the coaster world needs some really strong posative support. In twenty very fast years the coaster world has come so far. That thought in itself is so thrilling and interesting. Maybe im outta my hy head right now but we judge the million dollar structures way to much.

So because the ride is innovative and expensive, we're not allowed to say it sucks?

A couple of guys from CB told me awhile back to learn the ropes of the industry, pay attention and educate myself. I will give credit to those later because it was honestly the best advice ive ever got from CB members.

That's not what i'm saying Phantom, there's to much though. I think there is a fine line to be drawn. There is reviews, likes and dislikes that should always be there, but we have gone to far.

I think you know who you are that deserves a pat on the back. :-) The dedicated members of CB and live this place have shined out very brite. I used to come on here and run my mouth all the time and look like a fool, but I can honestly say I have a huge amount of respect for CB now more then ever. Ye Ha!

I'm so serious! *** Edited 7/8/2006 2:24:12 AM UTC by CoasterDiscern***

Hamster Boy, please, please, do not judge a ride by No Limits. Until No Limits comes with the free wind and seat simulator add-ons, it's just not the same thing. Here's my take on MF. It's really, really FAST. The lifthill is so fast and steep, that you don't have the normal going-up-the-lift jitters because there's no time! It's so fast that I still can't tell you honestly that I went through the first overbank turn out of three rides. If you're looking for ejector airtime--it ain't going to happen. It would disrupt the speed. Don't get me wrong though, I still want to ride it again. It's been six years.

Is it overhyped? Maybe. After all they called it Millennium Force, which seemed pretty dumb back in 2000. It seemed like anyone and everyone was putting the name Millennium on anything and everything to make a buck. People were having fights about whether it was actually the Millennium or not. Some people said 2000 wasn't it. There were predictions of mass computer outages, civil war, anarchy, the end of the world etc., all because they forgot to put in two extra digits indicating the year on PCs (Macs always had the two extra digits). Businesses were going around slapping "Year 2000 compliant" on everything including computers (some people were a little too cautious). I think the only reason that the name has stood up is because it rolls off the tongue, and any ride with 'force' in has to be cool, right? Without the 'Force' part, the ride's name would've been really bad.

If you want to ride the 'best' Intamin hypercoaster, point your car northeast for SFNE, which is still the most insane hypercoaster I've been on yet. The European Coaster Club visited recently and most of the members put S:ROS above E:GF. I can't say for sure because I've never ridden E:GF.

MF's season so far has been very frustrating, and I hope they do get it fixed really is very deserving of all the hype it gets IMO. If inversions are your thing, that's cool, but don't dish MF off as a coaster that won't be fun to ride. Lot's of good airtime, speed, overbanked turns, and it's smooth and quiet to boot.

And if inversions are important to you they have Raptor and Mantis, as well. Plus, there are others in the park too, with possibly more to come next year. get some sleep!

Now officially a Halloween Haunt Cornstalker for Fall '08!
